Island Hopping on Fyn and Ærø – 6 nights | 5 stages

 

THE BEST OF THE SOUTH OF FYN INCLUDING THE ISLAND ÆRØ

 

 
 
  

On this island-hopping tour in The South Fyn Archipelago you will be cycling to beautiful beaches, breathtaking hills with stunning views and charming villages with cosy cafés.

Sailing is an important part of your holiday here. The ferry ride to Ærø gives you intriguing glimpses of small islands inhabited by few people – some of them only grazing cattle. Besides Fyn and Ærø, you will have the chance to visit the small, scenic islands of Thurø, Tåsinge and Avernakø.

After the tour you can also go visit the “capital” of Fyn, Odense, which is the home town of the world famous poet and fairy-tale author, Hans Christian Andersen. Odense has it all: charming high streets, fascinating museums and galleries, inviting green parks and delightful cafés. Odense is also rightly known for being a remarkably bike-friendly city. In fact, there is no better way to explore this modern, lively and authentically “hyggelige” city than by bike.

 

  • Svendborg, the old seaside town – squeezed in between sea and hills. Home port for many beautiful wooden ships 
  • The south Funen Archipelago, a paradise for cyclists – as well as yachtsmen and hikers
  • Valdemar Castle
  • Ærø – a unique island community
  • Ferry trips and lovely beaches
  • Optional: Egeskov Castle or Odense, the hometown of H.C Andersen

Day 1 - Arrival to Svendborg

Today you arrive at your hotel in Svendborg. After checking in, you have time to explore the vibrant and exciting town with its historical centre. Shops and restaurants offer tasty, healthy and locally grown food, which has become a brand for South Fyn: ”Smagen af Fyn” or “The Taste of Fyn”. You can see the beautiful old traditional wooden ships at the harbour, visit the modern museum of natural history, Naturama, or the historical Svendborg Museum. Go for a walk along the harbour and in the city centre. You can also spend the day at Egeskov Castle north of Svendbord.
